Sabah State Mosque (Masjid Negeri Sabah) Tours

5 Reviews
Sabah State Mosque (Masjid Negeri Sabah)
A separate entity than the Kota Kinabalu city mosque, as the name implies the Sabah State Mosque (Masjid Negeri Sabah) is meant to be the principal place of worship for the Malaysian state of Sabah. Located on the outskirts of the Kota Kinabalu city center, the most immediately noticeable aspect of the State Mosque is the 215 ft. minaret which towers over the white and gold honeycombed main dome.

One of the most recognizable buildings in all of Sabah, the State Mosque combines contemporary architecture with traditional Islamic design. The minaret was inspired by those found in the Saudi Arabian cities of Mecca and Medina, and various other elements of the design are meant to draw parallels to the famous Blue Mosque of Istanbul. Covered in marble and resplendent in mosaics, the State Mosque is undoubtedly one of the architectural standouts for all of Kota Kinabalu.

Occupying 14.5 acres the mosque is able to provide worship space for 5,000 people, with a separate balcony able to accommodate groups of up to 500 women. International visitors are welcome to visit the State Mosque, though a strict code of conduct is rigidly enforced. All visitors must declare their presence and intention to enter the mosque and must do so through the front door only. Men are required to wear long pants when entering the mosque, and women must cover up with a sarong or robe and employ the use of a headscarf. Shoes are not permitted inside the mosque and visitors are required to maintain absolute silence. Though open on Fridays, non-Muslim visitors are discouraged from visiting as the mosque is frequently at capacity for weekly prayers.
